Patreon and Q23 switching away from vBulletin


#1823

I dunno… the eyeball looks kinda weird. It does make it hard to spot an authentic tomchick post too. I voted beret but I didn’t think that was an official poll for an actual change? S/B would’ve been my choice.


#1824

Hey! My D20 has a tail!


#1825

Looks correct to me, matches their logo. Can you clarify what you mean?


#1826

Oh, weird. I thought their logo had a ball next to the line. WTF is up with that line?

Sorry for the false alarm.


#1827

Incorrect! 11 days by computer math!


#1828

The Patreon logo I have noticed ONLY appears at the bottom of their web page. The top of their page actually matches the top of Qt3 (and looks a helluva lot better than the dumb icon, either of them, did imo).


#1829

Interestingly… their favicon is inverted in colors…


#1830

It also didn’t roll a natural 20 anymore. Sad.


#1831

I’m pretty sure it did; it’s just shot from the side this time :)


#1832

So, their primary logo is now a single line.


#1833

While I don’t mind showing that I’m a supporter, I think that razgon makes a good point.


#1834

I actually don’t really like having a little symbol on my icon showing I’m a supporter. Not strongly enough that I’m going to do anything or even really complain about it, I just don’t really like it. But I’ve always been the guy that hides out on the back row in class and never raises his hand. Stop looking at me!


#1835

I mean I’m a ludicrous over-the-top extrovert and I think it’s a little showy. Also I’ve got a weird disembodied eye stuck to my shoulder (mobiile) / armpit (desktop) and that’s uncomfortable.


edit:

New avatar means it’s just clinging to my elblow!


#1836

No, it’s the same as the top of Qt3.


#1837

Compared to their old logo, they seem to have exchanged the original symbol with a line.


#1838

Can we start a Patreon campaign so that Patreon will change their logo to something that interacts better with our avatars?


#1839

I like the Eye. Although I think for my avatar it looks like Rebecca Ferguson is sitting on the logo.


#1840

I’m a beret guy myself, and actually the cute cuddly tapir is on top of that poll right now!

If you guys don’t want to be singled-out as patrons, can’t you just change your registered email address? If you use gmail and your address on the forum and Patreon is "darthballz@gmail.com", you can change your forum address to "darthballz+qt3@gmail.com".

In my opinion, the best of all possible worlds would be

  1. Separate user preferences to show or hide the icon branding and title branding
  2. 1999-era Katie Holmes waiting for me at home tonight

#1841

Probably could, but then I look like the jerk who’s to cheap to throw Tom a few bucks each month.


#1842

TWIST: T Cruise is there, too, jumpin’ on yer sofa.


I mean right now you mostly just look like a Zoidberg who’s about to hungrily gobble up Tom. The horror!
